New interviews with Jane Espenson, William B. Davis, Scott Porter and Patton Oswalt

The first part of the weekly round-up includes several new interviews.

The A.V. Club has an interview with William B. Davis, whose autobiography, Where There’s Smoke...: Musings Of A Cigarette Smoking Man, was published last week. He talks about his work in The X-Files and some of the movies that he has appeared in over the years. Here is a snippet about the latest one, called The Tall Man:
The Tall Man (forthcoming)—Sheriff Chestnut
WD: That’s still in post-production. I just did the [additional dialogue recording] for it just last week. I think they’re trying to get it ready for Sundance, so maybe it will première there.
AVC: And you play a sheriff in this film? What’s the role exactly?
WD: It’s an interesting plot. There are children disappearing in this small town. And everybody assumes that they’ve been murdered. Without giving a spoiler—well, I am giving a spoiler—but it turns out that they’re actually being kidnapped from poor families and sent to rich families, where they can get a better childhood. It’s someone’s perverse idea of how to make a better a world.
AVC: That’s interesting. Pascal Laugier’s previous film, Martyrs, has a similar plot. But Martyrs seems much grislier than this.
WD: Does it? I haven’t seen that. Maybe I will. The Tall Man is beautifully shot, though. It looks great.

Comic Book Resources has an interview with Patton Oswalt from the New York Comic Con. He mostly talks about his new show, The Heart, She Holler.

Blogcritics has a video interview with Jane Espenson and Husbands Sean Hemeon and Cheeks:

CNN's Geek Out! has a new interview with Scott Porter. Snippet:
Porter reads "X-Men" comics to this day.

“[Writer] Peter David’s runs on 'X-Men' are up there for me," he said. "I know the ‘90s, for some people, were a little rough, but I love ‘Executioner’s Song.’ I love Havok and it was great seeing him be a big time hero towards the end of that saga. I also loved ‘Inferno,’ I thought that was a really cool story as well."

Aside from Havok, Porter ranks Nightcrawler ("an angel in a devil's skin") and Ice Man as favorite characters.

“These characters have been so well shepherded over the years that it’s hard to pick just one.”
There is another interview with Scott at Geek Chic Daily.

G4TV has an X-Men behind-the-scenes video:

And here is the teaser for the next episode of Hart of Dixie, "Faith and Infidelity" (Monday, 9 pm, CW):
